coolnicks posted this picture of the assembled web platform hardware from Seeed. Our prototype was on plain green PCB, so this is the first time we’ve seen it in danger red. Thanks for the pics! If you’ve just received your web platform, here’s some tutorials and links to get you started: Intro to dsPIC33 programming […]
See the latest version on the documentation wiki. There are reports of web platform deliveries in the forum, so we thought this would be a good time for an introduction to dsPIC33 programming. This introduction aims to help you start writing and compiling your own applications for the web platform. We cover lots of basics […]
Seeed Studio shipped the web platform kits this week, assembled boards will ship on Monday. We apologize for the delay. We’ll work with Seeed to stock the parts for future projects in advance so there’s less time between orders and delivery. Thank you for your support! Via the Seeed Studio blog.
Seeed Studio just sent an update on the web platform. The kit version has been shipped, you should receive your tracking information shortly if you haven’t already. The assembled version will ship next week. Albert, Seeed’s lead engineer, is currently programming and testing the assembled boards. The good news is that airmail shipping times should […]
rvbcrs, a regular poster in the forum, received a preview web platform PCB. This is his build running the @tweet_tree firmware with a ShiftBrite LED. Here’s a list of all the web platform demos so far. The web platform is available as a kit for $35, including worldwide shipping. Seeed Studio will assemble yours for […]
@tweet_tree, our Twitter controlled Christmas tree, will be online and accepting your tweets for the rest of today. A performance and traffic report follow.
Live video of @tweet_tree on USTREAM (sorry, WordPress wouldn’t let us embed it). Send colors or color codes to @tweet_tree on Twitter, watch the tree change. The broadcast has ended, thanks to everyone who gave us a light show with Twitter! @tweet_tree understands color names (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) and custom 24bit color […]
UPDATE: Live video of @tweet_tree on USTREAM (sorry, WordPress wouldn’t let us embed it). The broadcast has ended, thanks to everyone who gave us a light show with Twitter! Choose the color of our Christmas tree. @tweet_tree is a Christmas tree that everyone can control from Twitter. Just tweet a color to @tweet_tree. A small […]
This is an old version, see the latest version on the documentation wiki. The goal of this demo is to serve files to a web browser from a microSD card using the web platform hardware. Microchip’s latest TCPIP stack demonstration includes an HTTP server that reads files from FAT formatted SD cards, so there’s no […]
This is an old version, see the latest version on the documentation wiki. The Dangerous Prototypes web platform is a tiny server designed for networked hacks where a full PC is inconvenient. There’s lots of interesting projects that bridge the internet to microcontrollers, but most of them have a PC in the middle to handle […]
Coming, hopefully, by the end of the week.
Saw a QR code on the Elephant Parade.
This is VA7DB’s homemade build of the web server on a business card project Ian posted at Hack a Day. A PIC microcontroller handles incoming connections and serves files from a microSD card. An ENC28J60 ethernet MAC/PHY provides the network interface. There’s a live site, but you’ll have to find the link yourself, we don’t […]
